About
REI

REI@Weatherhead integrates
high quality economic research and analytic tools to understand
and accelerate regional economic development.

REI@Weatherhead operates as part of a network of
university-based economic development centers in Northeast Ohio.
Each of these centers has its own particular strengths. Together,
we form an important support network to civic entrepreneurs who
want to make change.

Sciences.

Visionary
Civic Entrepreneur:
Ben, OSU colleagues and regional
partners began exploring the application of open source economic development
methods and tools to accelerate regional agricultural development a few months
ago. How will Ben's legacy be carried forward, and by
whom?

The Center for
Regional Economic Issues (REI) at Case Western Reserve University hosts weekly forums called
Tuesdays@REI. The public discussions are part of
"Making Change," a regional
initiative supported by the SBC Foundation. Each week the Forums are
hosted at the Weatherhead School of Management from 4:00 P.M. to 5:45 P.M.
providing a place for individuals and organizations to talk about new ideas,
initiatives and strategies to build our Innovation Economy in Northeast Ohio.

your networks. Sharpen your brain. Build your knowledge."
